So, the bolts that hold the middle seat of my GL to the floor are missing. None of the threads I turned up via search indicate what size bolts work for these seats. Does anybody know? Or can you point me in the right direction?

The rails and everything else seem to be there, as is the seat, but no bolts to be found. The seat has just been sitting in there up against the wall.

But we need all 7 seats this weekend . . .

M8 maybe 15mm long should do it, throw a washer under the head for good measure. I probably have the only middle seat in the world held down with stainless steel hardware because it was what I had on hand. The factory bolts are these weird screws with a huge head on them, I didn't bother to try and find them.

Good luck,

Paul

Not sure of the size but, I have a set of the stock bolts and washers that hold the middle seat tracks to the floor. If you still need 'em, pm me!

edit:
Oh yeah, I've got the track if you need it to!

Hey, On the topic of the tracks, does anyone know where I can find a set of the covers? My van came with the middle seats but I like to take it out now and then and would like to have the metal covers for them.
